Liverpool are poised to hand a second trial to AGF Aarhus teenager Michael Zacho after he impressed the club's coaches on his first visit.

The 14-year-old was invited to Merseyside last week for a trial and now the Danish starlet has been given an opportunity to press his claims for a move to the Premier League club.

AGF sports director Brian Steen Nielsen praised Liverpool for the way in which they have behaved throughout this whole process.

He told the club's official website: "It has been a great experience, not just for Michael, but also for me.

"Liverpool have been very professional throughout, but still down to earth. It has been exciting to see how Liverpool run their academy."

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has previously worked at the club's Academy and takes an active role in developing the club's younger players.

Under his stewardship, John Flanagan and Martin Kelly are two players that have been promoted from the youth team to the senior team.
